Autumn is here - the leaves are falling off the trees all the money is draining from my bank account.
This is a time for ‘in-betweens’; something that i’ve really come to hate. 19 year old me is constantly in a state of transition; between where I am and where I want to be (OR feel that I should be). Remember that Britney song - i’m not a girl, not yet a woman? Yeah, kinda like that without the back-up dancers. Transitional phases are not always pretty, and they usually come paired with bad moods and bad style choices- but in the fashion-sphere transition means something VERY different to me.
AUTUMN is beautiful. Mother nature has worked her magic and made change something I am very excited about. I’ve never done a proper look book before, so this is my attempt. MY capsule colours for this ‘fall’ period are burnt reds, muted greens and vibrant yellows/oranges. Just taking a little bit of inspiration from nature I guess… The shops are packed with these not-quite winter concepts and I love them all. Here’s how I have worked some key pieces into my autumn wardrobe. SOME of them are so simple that I considered not including them, but hey - this is what I actually wear so wanted you guys to have some real insight. BASICS included. Here’s the run down for my casual capsules this season.
I’m also bringing out the winter coat again - this bright orange boiled wool coat is from Topshop last year. It’s such a gorgeous colour pop that really makes any outfit bold and exciting - I mean, how couldn’t you be excited by a colour like that? It’s stunning. HOWEVER if you want to be more subtle, something like my every-day barbour might be more like it…
NEXT this is a modern vintage piece by Chelsea Girl - it’s a mock 60’s shift dress that can be dolled up and chilled down. I LOVE IT, The look can be worn with crop tops underneath to create a more laid back feel, which I often do with black/white t-shirts. BUT this is it stripped back -with some little Chelsea boots. I’m going all out MIC.
FINALLY this is the most basic, yet still fashionable look out. I’m pairing my high wasted Topshop Joni jeans in black WITH a crop American Apparel grey and white tee. THAT’S IT. Paired with a little colour pop in my shoes I think it’s a sweet statement. TO me, this shows that you don’t always need to try that hard to look fashion-focused.
Lots of love guys,
